Race Seat iT

Anyone have one of their seats? https://www.hsbkracing.com/parts-and...bon-base-seat/ How is it for moderate trips, say 200 miles or less?


I have a DP race seat and i really do not like how tall it is.

Love mine...especially the grip. Used only on track...and never had an issue with comfort. I hate the height of the DP race seat as well...this is much better-

Thanks, do you have that model? 5mm over OEM height.

How are you doing, I think I saw a post where you had an accident?

I’d have to check but it looks the same...from same place.

Working hard at getting stronger but it’s a long road back. Still waiting on nerve function to return to know if I’ll be able to ride again-
Thanks from Twistedracer and Twisted10

I have one on my track bike, however, mine is the short one that fits with the tank extension. I had the DP performance seat on before and like this much better as a race seat. Super grippy, although, Iím not sure I would want it for a street bike, but it would probably be okay if you donít mind hard seats.

I just dont like how high the DP seat puts you. If the stock seat had some grip it wouldnt be terrible. It appears the race seat is only 5mm thicker than stock which should be great.

its Much closer to the stock seat in height than the DP race seat.
